Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Taste in burning shows to cd .

Ha ha ! Wow , no 73-78 ! To each their own ! But I have to admit , some of your criteria , fit what I might cut from a show ! Since I do listen to all years, I have more opportunities to prune songs out , if need be . I usually read the reviews, especially the Taper's Guide books, then see what I want to do . Something that is considered great by all, I usually just go ahead and get the whole thing . If it is a good to so-so show, I might also get the whole thing, or yank a few songs ( your criteria again), or just make a highlights cd . Sometimes I vary what I take out ; drums>space can look like attractive pulls,but it is sometimes the best part of a show ! But "Easy Answers", "Looks Like Rain", sometimes a weak "Ship of Fools" etc. are good choices for me , and I pounce on Welnick's songs ... poor Vince .
